Berardino: Breaking down the pay scale for younger Twins players
The Pioneer Press's Mike Berardino wrote an interesting blog explaining a little bit of how the Twins determine the contracts of the players in their pre-arbitration years. It's very interesting:
Raises are doled out in $2,500 increments, and pure service time isn’t enough to move up the ladder. Production — and not just the September call-up variety — is required.

It is a great living even at the "minimal" wage a pre arbitration player.

The Pioneer Press made a great hire in Berardino. Good for the Pioneer Press, better for Twins fans.
Berardino's information was used to update the R&P Page earlier this morning. (Only discrepancy was previous info on Swarzak - Doogie says $502,500 vs. Berardino's "about $510,000".)
